The farther east you go, the more snow you are likely to find.

There is a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for Rockingham, Caswell, Forsyth, Guilford, Alamance, Davie, Davidson and Randolph Counties until 9am Wednesday.

There is a low pressure system forming off the southeast coast and moving up the coastline. The heaviest snow will be off to the east of the Heart of Carolina region (Boone to Burlington). The coastal plain could get up to 5-7” of snow. However, parts of the area could also pick up a few inches of snow.

The farther east you go, the more snow you are likely to find. If you are included in the advisory, you could pick up from a dusting of snow to about 3 inches according to the National Weather Service. There is the possibility of light snow any time during the day. The heaviest snow will likely fall from this afternoon into the night- and taper off from west to east late. The whole system should wrap up before the sun comes up on Wednesday.  

Since temperatures are so cold, the precipitation should fall as all snow. With ground temperatures in the 20s, that snow shouldn’t have a problem sticking. Be extra careful when walking and driving this afternoon and tonight.

Here are some winter weather driving tips.
